Message to U.S. Citizens– U.S. Embassy Brasilia, Brazil (September 4, 2020)
Be an Active Voter and Vote Absentee!
The U.S. Embassy and Consulates General in Brazil will host virtual office hours via Zoom, during which a Voting Assistance Officer will be available to assist U.S. citizens who wish to register to vote and cast a ballot from outside the United States in the upcoming election.
Two virtual office hours will take place next Tuesday, September 8 from 6:00–7:00 p.m. Brasilia time and Thursday, September 10 from 7:00–8:00 a.m. Brasilia time. During these sessions, U.S. citizens will have the opportunity to enter a designated breakout room for a one–on–one chat with a Voting Assistance Officer. We encourage U.S. citizens across Brazil with an interest in this topic to participate.
